Wandering on the Islands of Wonder. Pospisil Bohumil (translated from Czech by the author). 1935 1st edition. Coulls Somerville Wilkie Ltd, Dunedin

The author journeyed around NZ. Here he describes the places and people he met with some historical facts thrown in

Whilst in Wellington in 1931 he felt the great Hawkes Bay Earthquake. His descriptions of the destruction there are while sometimes absolutely correct, at others are somewhat exaggerated to say the least!

His journeys and observations of such varied things as the thermal areas, the Maori people and South Island farming make interesting reading
